A smaller version of the Probe Tip (for babies/toddlers & smaller mouths)|||ARK's Mini Tip is a smaller version of the Probe Tip - our most versatile tip attachment for the Z-Vibe®. Its smaller size is perfect for babies and toddlers, and its rectangular shape features three different surfaces: bumpy, striated, and smooth. As such, the Mini Tip provides a varied sensory experience as you stroke and apply gentle pressure to the gums, palate, cheeks, tongue, and lips. This sensory input helps "wake" up the mouth and increase oral awareness for individuals with hyposensitivities. Or, it helps decrease oral defensiveness and food aversions for individuals with hypersensitivities.
The Mini Tip can also be used to provide targeted tactile cues during oral motor therapy. Use it to direct the articulators for tongue elevation, tongue lateralization, tongue retraction, lip closure, lip extension, jaw stability, and more. For detailed oral motor exercises and therapy tips, visit our blog and/or consult our how-to guide Tips & Techniques for the Z-Vibe®.
Caution: this therapeutic tool should be used under adult supervision at all times.
